My life just got a lot busier. My almost 5 year old daughter started her first year at school (a squeal of excitement!), and I am the one who is doing majority of school runs and after school activities, with a toddler in tow. And let me tell you, it is not always an easy task. In those moments I wish I could drive, which by the way is on my mile long to do/achieve list. But I am getting there, slowly but surely : )
With above being said, I am more and more opting for an easy weekday meals, whether it lunch or dinner, quick and simple will do the job. Weekends are more relaxed in our household, therefore more laborious meals are being cooked then.
This sausage and broccoli egg noodle dish is simple yet satisfying and you could easily add more veggies if you want. It is quick to make and you won’t need to stand hours near the stove. Double score!
First, start with putting large pot with salted water over medium high heat and bring it to a boil. Add egg noodles and frozen broccoli, boil it for 5 minutes. Drain and set aside.
To a frying pan add oil and heat it up; add chopped sausage and fry it for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Then add chopped onions and grated carrot, ½ cup of vegetable bouillon and simmer for another 3 to 5 minutes or until sausage is cooked through. Remove from the heat.
To the pan add noodles and broccoli, mix well. Add fresh herbs, if using. Do not forget to grate some of your favourite cheese on top and serve immediately.
